The Hundred Secret Senses
by joshzac (see profile) 10/27/14
Be insightful about the prospect of reincarnation and the Chinese culture. I put sticky tabs throughout the book, and then reread those areas once I completed it. This clarified much.

The ending of this book is very quick...but the details in the beginning can be confusing. Take notes on different characters from previous time periods so that it all comes together in the end.
